Queen Bey added more fuel to the fire on Sunday (Jan. 11) by posting an Instagram photo of herself buried in the sand with what appears to be a small baby bump on her stomach.

The mysterious image, which shows Beyonce with a big smile on her face, doesn't include a caption, leaving fans to wonder if the mound on her belly could be the superstar's way of announcing that Blue Ivy could be having a brother or sister in the near future.

Jay Z caused a similar stir that his wife could be expecting when he changed the lyrics to a song during a performance on the married couple's summer stadium tour. And in May 2013, rumors of a possible pregnancy began swirling recently when fan-photos emerged that purportedly showed a small baby bump on the singer during her Mrs. Carter Show performances.

Billboard has reached out to Beyonce's reps for comment about her possible pregnancy.
